Curious to what everybody who has their C-HR is getting re: mpg. I've filled up twice now, and both times getting 54 mpg. Mostly short drives, but a couple of longer ones. No motorway running as there are no motorways where I live!!
EDIT: Hybrid 1.8

Too early to say for me as still on first tank of petrol, but I had a Prius before this and averaged 54 over 4 yrs, with short journeys in the winter going down to 45-48 so I think 54 on short journeys at this timeof year is pretty good.

So on those figures over 1700miles is it really worth paying the extra for the hybrid? So much below the official figures.

After 2645km. (1640 miles) my MPG is even lower - 48.4.
I consider this normal since the temperatures where I live are between -20 C and -5 C and my commute is short ~10km (6mi), thus the engine is running constantly. Even if it warms enough to switch to EV-mode, it cools down within couple of minutes and starts again.

Julianog - probably a noob question but what are you using to put those MPG figures in your footer?

I would be really happy with 50 MPG on my normal journey profile - 2 daily 5 mile trips with 3 minutes at 30 and the rest at 70. I've never managed to get a petrol engine above 40 MPG and I've tried a few. I've never been a Diesel fan.

OP, it may help if you stated in your post if you are running a hybrid or not, if the 1.2 is it manual or CVT?

Otherwise everyone else is comparing apples with pears :)

Thanks Julianog. Interesting site.

Edit: Actually very interesting site. You can translate to english. It gives a good comparison of MPG and driving styles. Very easy to set up an account and get a link to your MPG to display. Average of 6 Hybrids showing is 51MPG with the best one averaging 55MPG(although if you look at the best one it is trending upward with 60MPg on recent runs - lots of urban driving)

well the wife is well made up with petrol consumption as it has halved the the amount of petrol that she uses .if you want to get the best out of the hybrid you need to drive gently, dont floor it and treat it like a lady ;)
instead of using £25 a week she used £12

What did she drive before and £12 covering how many miles?

OK, understand, but if her previous one had been a Nissan GTR at 15 mpg then the C-HR would only have been 32mpg :)

Anyone to use the 1.2 petrol manual edition? Magazines give very different numbers and i would like to have a real measure. For exaple Toyota gives 6lt/100 km, and i've got two magazines with test drives and a huge difference. 8.7lt/100km for the one (!) and 6.6lt/100km for the other. Anyone with real experience? Thank you!

I achieved about 5.4L/100km on a 20min test drive and that was city/motorway driving and did put the foot down a couple of times. The car had done about 4000km.
Think average speed was 52km/h.
I've ordered the 1.2 manual myself and will be quite disappointed if I'm getting 8.7L/100km that would be less than what I used to get in a Type-R
I think 6L/100km or 47mpg would probably be the true figure.

Hi, I said I would reply re first tank of petrol. But I'm not sure I have a useful figure. When I bought the car it had 5 miles on the clock and supposedly a full tank. It said there was 465 miles of fuel. After I filled up it said there was 518 miles of fuel so I dont think the dealer/stealer supplied a full tank of fuel. The indicated mpg is 51.5, but they are usually optimistic. The calculated mpg is 45mpg but that would only be correct if the tank was full. I reckon I got about 50mpg, but I think this is low due to a number factors. 1. very frosty mornings and cold weather. 2. Unusual amount of short journeys in that period. 3. Only 1 longer trip 70miles).
Since then it has been indicating 60-64mpg. So I am expecting around 55mpg (compared to the 54mpg I used to get on the Prius - which is not bad, I think.)
I would love to know how it estimates miles to go. It started out as 5+465 =470 but by the time I filled up it was estimating 20 miles to go but the miles was only 318. (=338). Where did the other 132 miles go?. This reduction might have been partly due to the short frosty journeys.
Will check in again when next refill.
